WHAT THE ?!?!?!?!?

My security level of protecting my daughters has just becomed heightened. Ashtyn came home from school yesterday and told me, "Mom, guess what? At school, Chandler told me I was SEXY and HOT." You would think I was talking about a teenage daughter, right? NO-Ashtyn is a Kindergartner! Come on-I didn't even know kids that age knew the word sexy. After freaking out in my mind for a minute thinking how the innocence of my precious daughter was being disturbed, I asked Ashtyn, "what did you do?"

She said, "I told him we weren't supposed to say that and if he did, he would have to go to the principal's office." Then she told her teacher! Yeah Ashtyn! I guess I have taught her a few things. I guess her innocence is still in tact (at least for another day)! Even though it was an eye-opening moment for me about what is yet to come with three daughters, it was also a proud moment for me that Ashtyn handled it the way she did.
(The hole in her sock is especially sexy, don't ya think? Time to go through her drawers and get rid of the"used".)

Oh my!! That is a little disturbing! It is really hard to want your little ones to do out into the 'real' world, you just want them to stay in your little bubble at home! It sounds like she is a smart girl! Way to go!

I can't believe that kids that age even know words like that. I am so scared for the first time my girls come home with a story like that. They are so innocent. I want to be able to keep them that way for as long as possible. Way to teach her what was right!

So sad that even at an early age we have to be worrying about this type of stuff going on. Sounds like you have taught Ashtyn well, so good job Mom & Dad!

You would be suprised what the kids hear at school. It sounds like you and her handled it well. I don't want to be on the defense and I don't know the boys who said that but sometimes kids say things they hear from older siblings or on TV, and they may not even know what they are saying even mean. All you can do is just keep an open relationship with your girls and when something really bad happens they can tell you.

Good Job Ashtyn! It must run in the family. When Aunt Calli was in first grade, Craig Hoelscher waited for her at the bottom of the tornado slide and when she slid down he planted a big one right on her lips! She slapped his face (Nana told her she could if any boy tried to kiss her) and the teacher settling the matter ultimately sided with Aunt Calli. That's what boys get for being naughty before they even have reason to be.

Good job Christine and good job Ashtyn! At least you have taught her something worth while. Those days to come, I already dread and think about too.

Go Ashtyn! That is not the first story I've heard about little kindergartners knowing & saying things way beyond their years. It's really scaring me. At least Kelsey won't be on a bus- that can get really bad!!

I took my tweenager and some pals home from a ballgame the other night.One of them was talking about a girl he liked- I said," what do you like a bout her?"(dumb-I know)"lots of things" he said- "but 2 things mainly"- WHAT? I shook my head- did I hear that right? I went home and grounded my 12 year old for life! j/k
